The combat is pretty much the same as in the other Tales
games, at least it is as much as you play in the demo. You can still turn on a second controller and have two people playing during the battles and it works better than it has in the previous games. When you have a second controller turned on, youíll still have to go switch their character to manual or semi-auto for them to play. Once you do that, the camera pans out so you can see them both on-screen easier than you could in previous games. The second person will only be able to do things in battle, though. Also, if you do leave their character on auto, the second player can still pause the battle and choose which items for the characters to use. This can be handy if you need someone to watch your health.
Final thoughts are that I really cannot wait until I can play the full Tales of Berseria game. I want to know what is going on with these characters and their stories. I have a feeling that it is going to be a complex tale that will keep me guessing whatís going to happen next, exactly how I like it. I recommend you download the demo (free) today and check it out for yourself!
